Case 2.2

A nephrostomy is inserted and his renal function starts to improve.

He will need further urological investigation and managment in the near future (ie further investigation of obstruction and placement of a stent in the ureter to allow removal of nephrostomy).

His renal function is unlikely to come back to a completely normal range and thus he will probably require ongoing follow up.
